Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Multicolored tanager found in humid forests including Araucaria forests and forest borders. Found in pairs or small groups and regularly accompanies mixed-species flocks. Males have a cinnamon head and back with a black mask and a straw-colored rump. They are blue-green below and have blue wings (with straw-colored coverts) and a blue tail. Males are similar to male Black-backed Tanagers, but lack the black back. Females are duller without the male’s mask and have a green back and cinnamon vent. Females are essentially identical to female Black-backed Tanagers.
